Steyn to Warner, OUT, the sound of timber! You miss, I hit! Steyn pitches full and straight, Warner swings and misses, and the ball takes out middle stump

Australia 21/1   SE Marsh 13* (13b 1x4 1x6)   DW Steyn 1.1-0-7-1

M Morkel to Marsh, OUT, soft dismissal this time, Marsh doesn't move his feet much as he attempts to clear the infield, and just scoops the ball up in the air to Botha at mid-on

Australia 29/2   RT Ponting 2* (8b)   M Morkel 1.1-0-6-1

12.4

Australia 90/3   MEK Hussey 25* (16b 4x4)   M Morkel 2.4-0-18-1

12.6

M Morkel to DJ Hussey, OUT, oh well held, Duminy! Thats one for the ages! You aren't going to see much better in the outfield than that gem of a catch! Hussey takes a hand off the bat as he chips the ball over mid-off, the ball beats Duminy by some distance but he doesn't for a second take his eyes off it, running ages down toward long-off, covering great distance, then times his dive perfectly to take it

DJ Hussey c Duminy b M Morkel 2 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 92/4   MEK Hussey 25* (16b 4x4)   M Morkel 3-0-20-2
